Dear Contra Costa County Community,

Today is our annual celebration of teachers and I am thrilled to extend my deepest gratitude to all the educators who tirelessly dedicate themselves to shaping the future of our children. On the National Day of the Teacher, we honor your unwavering commitment, passion, and resilience in nurturing young minds and fostering a love for learning.

Over the past few weeks, I have had the distinct pleasure of visiting the classrooms of the Teachers of the Year for each of the county’s 18 school districts and the Contra Costa Community College District. It has been an inspiring journey, witnessing firsthand the exceptional dedication and innovative approaches these educators bring to their classrooms each day. From fostering inclusive environments to igniting curiosity and creativity, their impact on our students is truly remarkable.

Furthermore, I attended the annual Students of Excellence ceremony. I met the teachers responsible for the 47 exceptional career technical education students who were awarded scholarships. These educators play a vital role in preparing our students for success in their chosen career paths, equipping them with invaluable skills and knowledge to thrive in an ever-evolving workforce.

These outstanding educators serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration for our entire community. Their contributions not only shape our youth's minds but also our society's future.

On this special day, I urge you to take a moment to express your gratitude to the teachers who have made a difference in your life or the lives of your loved ones. Whether through a simple thank-you note, a heartfelt gesture, or a kind word, let us show our appreciation for the incredible work that they do.

To all the educators in Contra Costa County and beyond, thank you for all that you do for our students. Your impact is immeasurable, and your influence everlasting.

With deepest gratitude,

Lynn Mackey
Contra Costa County Superintendent of Schools
